Overview

This new volume in the Handbook of Clinical Neurology presents a comprehensive review of the fundamental science and clinical treatment of psychiatric disorders. Advances in neuroscience have allowed for dramatic advances in the understanding of psychiatric disorders and treatment. Brain disorders, such as depression and schizophrenia, are the leading cause of disability worldwide. It is estimated that over 25% of the adult population in North America are diagnosed yearly with at least one mental disorder and similar results hold for Europe. Now that neurology and psychiatry agree that all mental disorders are in fact, "brain diseases," this volume provides a foundational introduction to the science defining these disorders and details best practices for psychiatric treatment.



*Provides a comprehensive review of the scientific foundations of psychiatric disorders and psychiatric treatment
*Includes detailed results from genetics, molecular biology, brain imaging, and neuropathological, immunological, epidemiological, metabolic, therapeutic and historical aspects of the major psychiatric disorders
*A “must have” reference and resource for neuroscientists, neurologists, psychiatrists, and clinical psychologists as well as all research scientists investigating disorders of the brain

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Michael Joel Schrift, D.O., M.A.(University of Illinois at Chicago College of Medicine)
Description: This volume in the Handbook of Clinical Neurology series marks a paradigm shift for the field of neurology, in that it now includes psychiatric disorders among brain disorders. When I was a junior faculty member in the late 1980s, I attended a neurology case conference in which the chair of neurology asked at the end of a resident's case presentation of a patient with catatonia, "Is this a neurological disorder or is the patient just crazy?" He obviously wasn't at all interested in the neurology of catatonia. This book is a small step in the attempt to change neurologists' tendency toward categorical thinking about psychopathology. This volume on the neurobiology of psychiatric disorders, written and edited by clinician-scientists, is a welcome addition to the neurology literature.
Purpose: The aim of the book, according to the editors, is to "provide a comprehensive and integrated view of psychiatric care and its current scientific foundations."
Audience: The intended audience appears to be neurologists. However, psychiatrists will most likely be the primary readers of this book.
Features: The 760 information-packed pages cover the neurobiological aspects of most psychiatric disorders. Some of the topics include the history of psychiatry and neuroscience, human functional neuroimaging, animal models, psychoimmunology, mood disorder, anxiety, pain, autistic disorder, personality disorders, Parkinson disease, stroke, Huntington disease, chronic fatigue, brain stimulation therapies, and pharmacotherapies. Each chapter is referenced with relevant citations of the scientific literature.
Assessment: This is an excellent book on the neurobiology of psychiatric disorders and a superb review of the scientific basis of the field. I highly recommend it.
